Is there anyway to get full Linux Support for the Sansa e250 that allows access to a memory card if installed? All you can access in Linux is the players internal memory when it’s set to MTP mode and even then it sometimes has problems mounting and remounting.
Why did they not just have it appear as a removable drive and if a 2 GB memory card is inserted it would show up as a 4 GB removable drive, why make it Windows only? Not everyone uses Windows many people prefer to use a better OS and have a Mac or Linux.
They did. It’s called MSC mode. MTP mode is for transferring DRM-encrypted files (like CRhapsody subscription service or audio books rented/borrowed from your local library) by ‘syncing’ through Windows Media Player.
Linux & Mac users both must use MSC, which makes the player’s internal memory and any inserted external memory card appear to your computer as just another storage medium, like a thumb drive or external USC hard drive. You will see 2 new drive letters assigned, one for the player and the other for the card.
